Platform Statement

The fruits of focus yield a harvest of results for the benefit of others. As a leader in the field of occupational safety and health it came not from self, rather from the possibilities learned through experiences and listening to others. Over twelve years ago I began to cultivate a career in helping others through organizational performance in safety. It has been a fulfilling experience since planting the first safety seed. It is from my participation in the ASSP network where I saw my career blossom into a new field of opportunities. It is from my participation in ASSP where I learned to lead local chapter initiatives and saw the triumphant successes and humbling tragedies that came from leading volunteer efforts. Although I consider myself new to the profession, I recognize the value of connecting with a global network of those who respect humanity and advocate for workplace safety and health. It is from this network that I continue to glean understanding of how to be a better leader. The best value of the ASSP community are the networking opportunities and gifts of knowledge that help sprout professional growth and development. That is why I choose to help lead as an Area Director. It is a noble calling. I will be the candidate of choice to continue the networking and the growth of the profession; for our region and beyond. It’s a long-term vision. To accomplish this, I will be listening to each chapter and their members to understand their unique needs. I will act on requests to provide resources to fulfill needs. The best leaders are those who serve others. The ASSP community is a network of experienced and aspiring professionals who deserve advocacy, passion and focus to bring to fruition a harvest of results.
